this isn't brain surgery people!! we are all going to pass. we will all kick the can, bite the big one!! i certainly hope when i am pissing myself and don't know who i am or where i am that someone will put me out of my misery!! you cannot expect to adopt out a horse with serious long term medical needs that require bottomless pockets. but i guess i am assuming christina understands that and tells prospective new owners about special diets that are costly and custom shoes to ease the pain of founder and navicular. as for rehab, how do you rehab a horse when there is not a proper area to even work with a horse on her facility, did i say facility i meant dump!! i certainly think its great if someone truly has the ability to help some horses but it takes alot of time and money to do it properly. having 25 to 30 on ten acres is not doing it right. by the way would any of you tree huggers like to volunteer and come move all the manure that has never been cleaned the entire time she has been at the melody location

11 horses where given to them in fall of 2011. They videoed the whole thing acted sim pathetic than turned it around on the people for funds. Than posted before and after pics of the horses. I know the person who gave horses up. The before photos where the afters at their place the afters where the befores with my friends barns in the back ground. Funny crap. A simalair story of conspiracy ac will get a vet to do a favor for them and rank healthy horses poorly to gain funding when tight. LOok up Calaveras county horses seized. The sopposed cuppla who ran the rescue comPlyed with ac and fed off ground, had shelter and a shed full of grains and stack of hay. Article red 10 horses on 115 acts or 15 horses. I don't see how bad that can be? The ac had a funding issue and sheriffs office was gonna drop funding. Now the cupple with kids and a torn up life are being charged and asked to pay 30,000 plus forfeit all horses? Hmm 500.00 + adoption fee +++ broke healthy papers horses plus hype and begging for donations. I think u should do it cause u lOve to rescue not for money.
